Whether you are new to coda meetings or you’re an experienced online user, there are some things you can do to make the most of your experience. The first step is to ask questions. Then, you can choose to find a meeting in your area or attend one online.

Find a meeting near you

Depending on where you live, you might find a coda meeting near you by simply looking up the meeting details on the CoDA website. Alternatively, you could ask your primary care physician. While you’re at it, you might also consider a Family Recovery Group, which is often linked to a specific addiction.

Have you tried Meetn, the new online meeting platform?
It’s turning out to become a decent alternative to Zoom and to the other major platforms.

For the purposes of this article, we’ll concentrate on the more traditional 12-step program. The most important piece of advice to keep in mind is that the CoDA meetings are not registration-based and that you should not expect to get any sort of membership card or a free teddy bear. On the plus side, you will have a network of like-minded individuals in your corner. If you are feeling a little shy about your newfound social networking skills, there are many online support groups that can help. In fact, it might be a good idea to have a friend or family member that is already a member come along for the ride.

Attend a meeting in-person

Generally, Coda meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend. This includes people with substance abuse problems. These meetings are held both on-site and online, in either a virtual or an offline format. Regardless of the format, members are anonymous.

All meetings are conducted off the 12-step programme of Alcoholics Anonymous. At a meeting, individuals share their feelings and experiences. They also offer recovery strategies. If you have questions, the group may be willing to answer them. Usually, the meeting begins with a reading of the Serenity Prayer and a list of steps. The leader of the group asks volunteers to read different items. Afterwards, the group holds hands and prays.

Most Coda meetings last about an hour. Some are free form, while others have a sign-up list of first names. In either case, attendees should remember to enable their camera most of the time. If you have any questions after the meeting, you can call any member on the list.

Attend a meeting online

Visiting a Coda meeting online can be beneficial in a number of ways. One of the benefits is being able to make contact with others in recovery. You can find out about other groups, attend meetings, and even ask questions to the more experienced members. Another benefit is the fact that it is open to the public. In addition, if you are interested in attending a Coda meeting you can sign up for meeting notifications.

The simplest way to do this is to search the CODA database. This website contains a listing of worldwide meetings in the Coda program. There are also recordings of these meetings, which you can listen to. Generally, these meetings are free to attend. If you are not able to attend in person, you can get the benefits of attending by using the CODA literature or by traveling to the CODA meeting in your area.

In addition, there is also an online platform called Meetn that makes finding people for meetings easy. It is a fairly decent alternative to other major platforms like Zoom.
